going on. we have all these things to get to. people are are talking about. the clintons overnight tim kaine became the late toast throw his support behind hillary clinton. this came a few days after bill clinton spoke at georgetown university and delivered a deflgsz of his economic record as president. to head off trouble on the left for hilary. >> how many times i have read from the left bitter criticism about what a slug i was to sign the balanced budget of ' 96 lowering the capital gains rate. i did it but we had the money to do it and it was the price i paid to e get the children's health insurance program and all that education stuff and i would do it again tomorrow in a heartbeat. >> so the legacy of bill clinton on economic issues and domestic issues, it plays a role in how the democratic party looks at him and i found that speech so interesting because when i look at the clinton years, i think the speech was two hours, which was short for bill clinton. i think you could make a case to be satisfying to the liberal base but he forged this alliance. talk about what happened in 20
